BRONX, NY — Jordan Díaz, Oakland’s rookie second baseman, was a force to be reckoned with last night at Yankee Stadium – hitting three home runs and totaling four RBI in the A’s 10-5 loss to the Yankees. 

The 22-year-old, of Monteria, Colombia, became the first Colombian-born player in MLB history to hit three home runs in a game. Also, Díaz entered Tuesday with one career home run in 89 MLB plate appearances and is now the third rookie in Athletics franchise history to homer three times in one game. 

“It’s very special for me,” Díaz said. “As a kid, I would sit in my house with my grandpa and we would always watch Yankee Stadium on TV and talk about the Yankees. For me, it’s a special day. Playing here in Yankee Stadium, it’s a dream come true.”

He added: “I know the big leagues is not going to be like that every night. But I’ve just been working on it, making some adjustments.”

Díaz is currently the fourth ranked prospect in the Athletics organization. To learn more about the Colombian native, his magical night and his journey to MLB, read this article posted on by Martín Gallegos.
